This is a pretty big day for us, because it is the first time that we have a flatlander answering our quick seven questions. Read more and check what was Art Thomason’s worst injury, what he has to say about bmx community, what is his best joke and more.
1. Name, Location, Sponsors.
Art Thomason, Pearland, TX.
2. The best place to ride.
The parking garage of the apatments in Houston where Dax used to live
3. What do you think about BMX community?
The BMX community is awesome. I have met so many cool people that I would have never met if it were not for BMX. I do miss the days where flatland/street/vert were all part of the same contest. It was fun to hang with the whole community.
4. What was your worst injury on or off your bike?
Broken lower leg from riding. My foot was pointing 90 degrees to the left when my knee was pointing forward.
5. Tell a joke for kids.
This is my son’s favorite: what do you get when you put 2 and 2 together? a tutu!
6. What is your opinion about mellonBMX and online BMX contests?
I love the idea of online contests. There is no substitue for everyone getting together in the same place for a contest, but an online contest is a great way to help everyone progress and it is cool to have as many takes as you want to get it right. There is so much progression happening as a result of the internet that it only makes sense to have online contests. Also, people that can’t afford to travel can show off their skills.
7. Who would you like to thank?
My Wife Kerrie, my pareents, and Hoffman Bikes.
